After nearly a year of living through a global pandemic, it's safe to say that everyone is in need of a bright spot, and KitchenAid is here to deliver. The beloved kitchen appliance company has announced their 2021 color of the year: honey. "Through the color honey, KitchenAid offers everyone a new way to bond over making while bringing an extra touch of warmth directly to their countertops," the brand said in a statement.

If you love the new golden orange color, you'll pleased to know that the brand's iconic stand mixer and K400 blender can purchased in the hue right now. As many home cooks and bakers improve their kitchen skills, there's no better time to invest in a stand mixer, which can help you master the art of baking sourdough bread, mixing cookie dough, or even rolling out your own pasta dough, with the help of the right attachments. If your new year's resolution was to eat cleaner, why not whip up a nutrient-packed smoothie or creamy vegetable-based soup in the brand's powerhouse blender?

This isn't the first time that KitchenAid has designed a food-inspired color. Honey joins other pantry staples like Pistachio, a pale green hue, Yellow Pepper, an intense deep yellow, and Watermelon, a juicy red-pink shade that brings joy to the kitchen. "For KitchenAid, it has become increasingly evident that the warmth of humanity is paramount," said Jon Bellante, KitchenAid global marketing director. "Honey isn't just a product we use in recipes around the globe; it's an invitation to connect and a reminder of the joy that comes from collaboration. Through the color honey, KitchenAid offers everyone a new way to bond over making while bringing an extra touch of warmth directly to their countertops."

Or if you're one of millions of couples that got engaged in the last year, there's no better gift to add to your wedding registry than a classic stand mixer and blender.
